In India, ecotourism is convenient because it becomes a lucrative way to speak the conservation language. This paper questions whether ecotourism is actually leading to conservation.

[texts]Globalisation, Governance & Grassroots -The Case of Ecotourism and its Impacts in Tribal Dominated Areas in India - Equitable Tourism Options (EQUATIONS)
The growing popularity of ecotourism in India has paid scant attention to the rights of indigenous people and concerns of civil society organisations that ecotourism at best is yet another form of greenwash. Largely ignored are the core issues that constitute ecotourism: participation and benefits of communities in such tourism and negative impacts of tourism on biodiversity and ecosystems. Currently, there are conflicts over access and use of natural resources (particularly in Scheduled Areas) ...

[texts]Not In My Backyard! How Governments and Industry have washed their Hands off Responsibility in Tourism: Exploring Indian Realities - Equitable Tourism Options (EQUATIONS)
Does policy and practise of responsibility in tourism differ in terms of what is stated and what happens on the ground? Is responsible tourism yet another buzzword or are there paradigm shifts in the way tourism planners, policy makers and the industry understand tourismâs role, and wish to position it. Going beyond the âfeel goodâ power point presentations, it is important to face the ingredients and promises of responsible tourism and what it really hopes to deliver...
